        That should be good enough to install, and then add non-free to
 sources.list and get the firmware required for the driver to work
 (absent a non-free debian installer that bundles non-free bits). This
 is no different from what I have had to do already for my nvidia card
 (degraded X support until I arranged to have non-free nvidia drivers
 installed). I would think that was an acceptable solution.

There is no fire like desire. There is no hold like anger. There is no
net like ignorance. There is no river like craving. 251
